Published by ACPA: College Student Educators International, this book is an important reference for student affairs professionals who need to understand the history, breadth, depth, and future of multicultural student services. Senior-level administrators, who have a desire to make socially-responsible decisions that transform college campuses into democratic and multicultural communities, should also consider this reference as a starting point for ideas and solutions. Since I study diversity and social justice in higher education, this book has become an invaluable resource for enhancing my awareness and knowledge of pertinent issues in multicultural affairs. Dafina Lazarus Stewart is an associate professor of higher education and student affairs at Bowling Green State University.
The book is divided into four sections with 19 chapters:
- History and Evolution of Multicultural Student Services
- Multicultural Student Services Affirming and Integrating Diversity
- Diverse Contexts, Similar Goals (Academic and Student Affairs)
- Building Bridges (Collaborations and Multicultural Competence)
